I'm wondering if other people have this same issue, when creating a new title, Premiere looks at your sequence settings to determine the title video settings, although it seems to be stuck on 29.97fps. I'm using 30fps, and everytime I create a new title, I have to change this.
Good question Jim....
Here is my logic, and I'd be happy to learn more about why to use 29.97
The video is for the web.
I am an animtor who renders frames.
And I don't think people should use 29.97 because it seems outdated and stupid.
Granted, none of these reasons are great, and they are probably mostly ignorant too. Any feedback is helpful.
You won't notice any difference, especially for web.
It's just a matter of convenience, really. 29.97 is the norm, so if you don't actually need 30, then just use the norm.
Take note that not all codecs can handle 30, though. DV for instance, will force 29.97.
Well, that's the thing... if it is for web, and I render frames from my animation as discreet units, and I composite with frames that are discreet units, and if the end result is all the same, then why would I reinforce a technical solution to an issue from the 50's?
I made a 30fps sequence because I was curious why you were having this issue you describe. However when I make a 30fps sequence and make a new title it makes my stills 30fps too. So I couldn't reproduce your issue.
So, I spoke too soon. Things are getting stranger:
Name: 'Check In'
Frame Size: 1366X768
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square
Preview File Format: P2 1080i-1080p DVCPROHD
New Title Suggested Dimensions:
Pixel Aspect Ratio: D1/DV NTSC .9091
It used to be simply a matter of a different timecode, now it's pixel aspect ratio and dimensions.
I wonder what is driving this setting if not my sequence settings?
I have 0 clue what is going on with your project that's wierd. And yes I am just using the title new option and it's giving me exactly what it should. I'm totally lost as to what is going on with your current issue. The only work around I could suggest is to possibly duplicate titles instead of creating new ones like you normally do. Then once you duplicate them from one that already has the correct sequence settings then just edit it as you normally would. It won't really require anymore work than clicking title new if you think about it.
New sequence. Settings (middle tab at the top). Editing Mode, set to Custom. Time base, set to 30fps. Under video, set your pixel size (1366x768).
With that sequence selected, when you create a new title using "default still," it will match those sequence settings.
Jim wonders why you are using 30fps. Im wondering why you are using Premeire. Not saying you shouldn't, just wonderring what your goal is that isn't met by your initial application.
I am assuming you are using no video in your sequence, just the animaton and looking to export for the web.
3D Studio Max doesn't edit video so well, although I have thought about extending it for that
I'm using CS5, so the instructions you gave me are not exactly applicable- although... I just tried it, and it worked.
But I still don't understand Premiere's behavior/reasoning, do I need to create a new sequence and then create Titles in that sequence for Premiere to give me the same settings as my sequence?
If I move to another sequence that has already been created, a sequence with the same settings, it prompts for 29.97, etc.
Yes, sometimes I wonder why I am using Premiere as well. It is a pretty good collecter of my different types of media, and pretty simple to use. I am working on an instructional video for a client, and it's a lot of screen recorded footage, 3D graphics and titles/UI type interfaces. I knew it was a mistake to do so much of the design in Premiere, but I did it anyways. What a great learning experience!

Is all of it 1366x768? If so, are you working in a sequence that matches it? If not,does the sequence match some of it?
